In brief: Variable

Memory loss of the events near the time of a loss of consciousness may or may not return, depending upon the severity of the injury.
It is not uncommon for these memories to return over the ensuing days to weeks.

In brief: Some may.

There is frequently memory loss in coma, particularly if trauma was involved.
Over time some memories may return or events will be related to the person so that they seem to remember.
